This is a unique journey in the majestic land of Peru. An opportunity to visit the highlands of the Sacred Valley and then onward to famed Machu Picchu. Onward we bear north to discover some of the gems of hidden Peru. The region of Chachapoyas and Kuelap were relatively secluded from the outside world until the past 15 years and have gradually revealed their elusive secrets. Here you will visit the towering Gocta waterfall, the cliff side burial chambers of Macro and onward to the pinnacled pre-Incan fortress of Kuelap. The Chachapoyas people of this region had their flourishment from the years of 900 to 1400 AD. It leaves behind a settlement of walls of 60 feet high, over 400 circular stone dwellings with geometric friezes, walled mural iconography, and high relief carvings. Visiting Kuelap provides an opportunity to understand the legacy left behind by an extinct early American civilization that contributed much to the region before its disappearance.
A journey of discovery that encompasses the famed Machu Picchu and then ventures to the enigmatic and hidden Chachapoya region of Northern Peru.
